Main House First Floor
Four double bedrooms, three twin bedrooms, six bathrooms (four en-suite)
The master bedroom is a very large room with an en-suite bathroom (with separate bath and shower). This bedroom really benefits from the amazing views of the Lake District from the French doors that open up to a large balcony with outside table and chairs.
The second double bedroom looks out onto the kitchen garden and has an en-suite shower room.
The third double bedroom has a large window that looks out onto the beautiful views of the Lake District and has an ensuite shower room. This bedroom also has a small plasma television with digital freeview channels.
The fourth double bedroom also has the same amazing views of the Lake District and has an ensuite shower room.
The first twin bedroom is next door to the master bedroom and looks out onto the kitchen garden below.
The second twin bedroom can form part of a family suite with the second double bedroom as a door to a shared hallway means that this room could also use the en-suite shower room. This gives flexibility in that a couple could share the bathroom with their children in the twin room – or choose to leave the door closed for privacy.
The third twin bedroom has a view of the beautiful landscape of the National Park and has wooden floors. All the twin bedrooms have beds that are on wheels so can be easily moved together to make a superking size bed.
There is a family bathroom at the end of the corridor which has a bath with a showerhead. Those bedrooms without en-suites can also use the shower room on the ground foor.
All the double bedrooms come with hairdryers. There is a large bookcase in the hallway with a wide selection of books of all genres for you to borrow.
Self Contained Flat
The self contained flat is part of the main house yet has a separate entrance. The flat contains a double bedroom, single bedroom (with bunk beds) and bathroom with bath and shower. There is an open plan living room/ kitchenette which benefit from a large window that looks out onto the beautiful landscape of the National Park. The living room has a television with freeview channels. The kitchenette has a fridge, oven, hob, kettle, microwave and toaster.
This flat is suitable for a couple in your party who perhaps have a young baby or children and want a bit more extra space or privacy. The flat can be rented out with the rest of the house and can also be rented out separately. Please note if you rent only the flat you will not have access to the main house’s gardens but just the large orchard at the back of the house.
Dogs and Babies
Wood Hall is dog friendly although limited to two dogs per booking and we request that no dogs be allowed in the bedrooms.
Wood Hall provides a cot, changing table, high chair and Avent microwave bottle steriliser. We can also recommend a local babysitter if you would like an evening out. The self contained apartment also provides a travel cot. There is also a children’s play area in the back orchard comprising of a slide, swing, double swing and climbing rope (access is only for those who have rented out the apartment or house and apartment).
If you require a cook during your stay please mention this in your booking and we can give you our shortlist of highly recommended local cooks (their fees vary) who can meet all your catering needs, from doing all the food shopping to making three course meals and all the tidying up afterwards.
